Has Al-Zarqawi messed up big time?

This could be worse that any blunder Bush ever made - if we can somehow aeize the moment. Zarqawi has explicitly told the Sunni minority that he does not fight to make them safe in their own country, but to embroil them in civil war.

And how about little Sadr, who has tried to pretend they are all good friends, and there would be peace if only the Americans leave?

This time they have it right at

More important, the terrorist acknowledges that the agreement of Iraq's leading Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish parties on the country's first permanent postwar government last week was, as he bluntly put it, ‘a dagger in the heart.’ The Zarqawi movement has spent the past several years trying to ignite a sectarian war between Iraq's Sunnis and Shiites; the new ‘unity’ government, if it takes hold, could be the turning point toward defeating that strategy.”

I actually was more worried about the compromises involved in creating this new government, but if it scares the piss out of Zarqawi it's got to be good.
